East Marginal Way South between S Atlantic and S Spokane streets is part of the Heavy Haul Network (HHN) established in 2015 to allow heavier cargo containers to be transported on designated streets between the Port of Seattle terminal gates and the regional railroad and highway systems.
It is also a primary north-south route for people riding bikes between the West Seattle Bridge Trail and Downtown and SODO.
Currently, East Marginal Way is truncated at the north end at Atlantic due to SR99 construction, but in the future, it will connect to the Alaskan Way waterfront.
North segment street options
The Project is considering three street design options for the north segment of East Marginal Way to enhance safety by better separating trucks and bikes and ensuring adequate facilities for pedestrians.
